Bird Sanctuary

Ceramicist Erik Hertz takes a fresh approach to his handcrafted birdhouses. Instead of the traditional boxy shape, he creates a rounded refuge that is both a work of art and a natural addition to the wooded landscape. Its small opening offers an inviting shelter to many varieties of bug-eating birds, like finches and wrens, while turning away larger, predatory species. Hertz's use of mottled, colorful glazes makes his birdhouses a welcome sight to the human eye as well.Handmade in Melbourne Beach, Florida.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship! The colors used are just gorgeous. Very high quality item. Was a special delight to learn that the artist was inspired to make pottery on a visit to Asheville NC several years ago, as I am an Asheville area native.
